After a few months of exclusive use, the 140 foot IGA Yachts motor yacht KING BABY was entered into the charter market by her owner, and prominent yacht maven Jana Sheeder wasted no time in securing the very first charter.
Just days after the yacht’s manager publicly announced the yacht would be available for the upcoming Caribbean yacht charter season, Sheeder delivered a 10-night contract to hire the vessel during the year-end holidays.
Tall and beamy, the 140 foot yacht KING BABY, IGA Yachts (China’s) largest vessel built to date, is named after King Baby Studio, the iconic Los Angeles jewelry design business owned by Mitchell Binder. Binder has been the darling of the LA-based music industry for more than three decades, with celebrity clients including members of the Rolling Stones and Aerosmith. King Baby Studio has made custom jewelry for celebrities like Howard Stern, Liz Taylor, and Taylor Swift.
Binder and the yacht’s owner are close friends, and the owner wanted his new toy to reflect the confidence, charisma and maverick attitude of provocative jewelry line.
Luxury with a rebel spirit sums up both the jewelry and the look of the yacht. From chrome-plated guitars, to vintage rock photos framed in black alligator leather, to the ondeck Jacuzzi tub with a three tiered waterfall, to custom drain covers, the yacht is truly unique and unlike any charter vessel in the world. The rock décor is a collaborative effort between famed yacht designer Evan K Marshall, King Baby Studio, and Slick+Design.
Accommodations for up to 10 guests are available in a full beam master stateroom on the man deck, and 4 guests cabins below.
Of course, you can’t have a music-inspired yacht without a great entertainment system. 24 televisions (yep, 24, not a typo), including an 84-inch 4k screen in the skylounge are integrated with an Apple TV / music system. Surround sound pumps the beat throughout the interior & exterior – from bow to stern. Music can be played from a personal device or from the yacht’s music library.
Sheeder, the President of Miami-based 1-800 Yacht Charters is known for her boutique operation that provides superyacht vacations to entertainment industry artists and executives.
King Baby is available from $160,000 per week in low season, to $175,000 per week for peak holiday dates. She will be based in the Caribbean through spring 2017, then relocate to New England for the summer.
